It is located in the northern central parts of the country, close to the main east west road across the country, north of the Gambia River. The stone circles represent an extraordinary concentration of monuments in a band 100 km wide along some 350 km of the River Gambia. In total the four groups have 93 stone circles and numerous burial mounds. It is believe they date back to the 3rd century BC up to the 16th century AD, forming a vast sacred landscape of ancient graves representing an organised society.
